  1. I got something in the mail from Global Entry about that, but I didn't think it was worth the cost for my two or three trips to the UK every year.
  2. That is funny considering I was in awe that they didn't boot a guy who was wasted off a flight I was on. He just claimed he had taken painkillers for a tooth ache and they accepted that explanation.
  3. https://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-and-advice/uk-epassport-gates-budget-2018-us-america-canada-australia-new-zealand-a8608301.html I heard this was a possibility earlier this year, although at that time it sounded more like the UK was just going to recognize Nexus/PreCheck/Global Entry participants as trusted travelers.

    The F-35

    I'm sure it won't happen, but the wars we're going to be fighting are down in the weeds against assholes with AK-47s and man-portable missiles and rockets that are more dangerous to person firing it than anyone else. We're not going to be participating the tip of the spear bombing raids in heavily defended airspace.

    The F-35

    What we need most in 2018 is helicopter gunships for counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency missions, that is the war we're fighting for the foreseeable future.

    The never ending KC-46 saga

    They wouldn't have much prospect of getting into any mainline left-seat if they stuck with the USAF much longer. They just had hoped to be retiring with hours on something other than the KC-135.
  7. Virgin Nigeria operated two ex-Air Canada 767s in the mid-2000s

    The never ending KC-46 saga

    I know a recently retired KC-135 pilot who was at one time really excited about the prospect of retiring with a good number of hours on the A330 or 767. They didn't think giving it another five years was going to see them on the 767 so they retired at twenty years and are debating between Delta and JetBlue.

    WOW coming to YVR

    I have never met a single white Zimbabwean who referred to themselves as a Zimbabwean.

    WOW coming to YVR

    There is no routing too long or convoluted for the Indian, Pakistani, South African or Rhodesian diaspora if they can save $50. YYC/YEG-SEA-SVO-BOM on Alaska Airlines and Aeroflot with something like a 20 hour layover in Moscow was popular at one time, so popular Alaska had to replace one of their Q400 frequencies from YYC with a 737-400.
  11. I just noticed the date in the article is wrong, this occurred June 8th 2015. And this embarrassing little incident happened July 23rd 2015, which is actually the same day Kinzer was fired. Mr. Baden is at Delta now.
  12. The funniest thing about this story is one of the management pilots who fired him subsequently failed to read his notams and had a fuel exhaustion emergency landing at a closed airport.
  13. I'm going to go with short-staffing in the Office of International Aviation.

    WestJet 787

    I understand the 767s will move to YYZ for exactly that purpose.
  15. So... were Air Canada and WestJet consulted before the space cadet announced pax could carry marijuana on domestic flights?
